Slavic is a trainer for Innovista Moldova and former National Director of Innovista Russia. He has an undergraduate degree from Kirovograd Pedagogical University and taught in a school for three years, as well as in West Siberian Bible College. He has many years of experience supporting and training pioneering leaders across the Russian-speaking world. Much of his ministry has been in Siberia, where he was denounced on Russian television as a corrupting influence, arrested, and threatened with deportation. As a Ukrainian living in Russia, he was reluctantly forced to leave the country with the outbreak of the war in 2022. He is now serving Russian-speaking leaders in Moldova, as well as living in a house that supports Ukrainian refugee families. Slavic and his wife, Olya, have four children and he enjoys hiking, Live Action Role-Playing, and mountain biking.
